Badgers Cricket Club – Home Page

A warm and friendly welcome from Badgers Cricket Club – a wandering cricket side who play only friendly cricket matches, mostly in the villages of Surrey – and who also enjoy a yearly three day tour (for many years to the Cotswolds, briefly to Dorset, for several years to Cheshire and more recently we have wandered in our touring too, taking in visits to Cheltenham, Taunton, Canterbury, Worcester and Milton Keynes). For more information about the club and this web site, take a peek at the about page.

The site continues to grow in scope, despite having made its first appearance twenty-four years ago in March 2000, and in addition to up-to-the-minute results, summary scorecards, detailed scorecards, match reports and fixtures, you will also find more statistical information than you could shake a stick at (going all the way back to the club’s inaugural season in 1959), the Badgers ‘Honours Board’, a list of the current club officers and links to our social media ‘presence’.



What’s New

15 Jun 2024

PLEASE NOTE that tomorrow’s match at Tatsfield has been called off due to a waterlogged pitch and therefore we are without a game again this weekend.

14 Jun 2024

A new opponent in Merstham and a lovely ground, with a lightning fast outfield, tucked away on Earlswood Common but with an unfortunately long trek from the parking to the pitch that my back is still telling me about, where the Badgers notched up their third win of 2024 in workmanlike fashion. The usual summarised details of the game can be found on the results page along with a statistical notes only match report, the detailed scorecard, and the traditional Badgers’ focused scorecard.

7 Jun 2024

PLEASE NOTE that Darrell has filled an empty slot on the calendar for us this Sunday at a new opponent in Merstham. Full details on the fixtures page.

1 Jun 2024

PLEASE NOTE that this Sunday’s game against Hook & Southborough has had to be cancelled as the Badgers were unable to raise an eleven. Next week is a TBA (to be arranged) in the calendar so fingers crossed that Darrell can find us a game.

Our annual trip to Woodmansterne, a local game for many, was graced with the presence of several former club stalwarts but sadly that was not enough to inspire the current generation who fell to their first loss of the season. The usual summarised details of the game can be found on the results page along with a statistical notes only match report, the detailed scorecard, and the traditional Badgers’ focused scorecard.

25 May 2024

A return visit to Warlingham, who we played for the first time in many years last September and who we are slated to revisit in the same slot this year, saw Badgers record a second win of the season on a sunny afternoon (no need for my umpiring blouson for the second week running). The usual summarised details of the game can be found on the results page along with a statistical notes only match report, the detailed scorecard, and the traditional Badgers’ focused scorecard.

The older What’s New entries are now held on separate pages, to keep this main page cleaner and smaller, and you can also navigate to them using the drop down menus at the top of the page (under Badgers’ Burrow).
